Best Canon 580EX Speedlight Batteries

Helen Jones Photography https://www.amazon.co.uk/Energizer-Ultimate-Battery-Lithium-Jan-Apr/dp/B000TOC2QM/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1295250513&sr=1-1

I am often asked which batteries are best for powering camera flash and compact cameras. I have been using the Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries for a while now to power my Canon 580ex Speedlight and would thoroughly recommend them. Amazon have an amazing deal on them at the moment which I believe will run until April.

I am finding that one set can see me through photographing an entire wedding or event. The only downside is that they are not rechargeable, however Boots do a recycling service for batteries so I hope they go to a heaven somewhere!

Wedding at Westminster Cathedral and Dartmouth House

Congratulations to Rachel and David who got married on 23rd October 2010 at Westminster Cathedral. I didn't envy Rachel the task of finding a dress worthy of the grand walk to the alter but she found one of the most amazing dresses I have ever seen! You scrubbed up well too David :-)

Despite a pretty awful weather forecast the weather was glorious. My second shooter Tamas Olajos arrived at Dean Street Townhouse for the Groom's Brunch. While the boys were figuring out how to pin their button holes on I was having a fantastic time with Rachel and the girls in the flat in Notting Hill. The wedding had a black and white theme which was cleverly picked up with the wedding flowers. The bridesmaids wore black dresses and shoes and the bride had a gorgeous pair of shoes by Jimmy Choo.

Rachel and her father arrived at Westminster Cathedral in a vintage taxi and the cathedral provided a dramatic setting for the wedding photographs. The ceremony was beautiful, with exquisite music by the choir and soloist.

After the wedding ceremony the guests were taken to Dartmouth House in Routemaster buses and we wandered around Mayfair taking quirky reportage style photographs. I was very impressed that Rachel could walk, skip and jump in her Jimmy Choos!

The formal portrait shots were taken in the courtyard at Darmouth House. Rachel and David favoured a more relaxed style which I think we achieved really well. I particularly enjoyed photographing the speeches which took place along with the cutting of the cake on the grand staircase.

The dining room looked stunning. Rachel had spent many months collecting china so that each individual place setting would have a different teacup. Like everything on the day, including the bride, the room was stunning!

Fun Wedding Photography at The Goring

A big thanks to Ollie and Jane for posing so fabulously on their wedding day! They had a September wedding at The Goring, Beeston Place, London. I know they share my view that The Goring is one of the best venues in London for a wedding. It is a small family run hotel and their friendliness, attention to detail and of course food is second-to-none.

Ollie and Jane wanted their photography to be fresh and original so after posing in the gardens we went for a walk to do some reportage photography. The reactions of the general public were mixed, but we did meet some friendly people. Thank you to the staff at the London Souvenir shop for accommodating us and letting us use their flags and brollies! It seemed fitting to go with the London theme as we were celebrating at The Goring which is quintessentially London after all.....

The reception was flawless, great food, heartfelt speeches, yummy wedding cake, fantastic French music by a magical trio.... a perfect day. Oh and I think Jane should get a round of applause for her choice of dress!
